Who is Kate Carlo? Well . . . she's the love of Dean Dorian's life, for one thing. She's also a former beauty queen, a teacher, a flutist, a cook, a plant lover, a writer, the owner of a 1965 Galaxie and . . . oh yeah. She is also an amateur detective, a fact that leads her and Dean into all sorts of scrapes, predicaments and encounters, with friends and enemies alike. Yes, but who is Kate Carlo, really? Well, perhaps that is a question that only this novel can answer fully. Or perhaps not.
